Norcom NJROTC unit places first in multi-state competition

Norcom NJROTC Unit

The I.C. Norcom Navy JROTC team placed first in the National Academic Examination for Area 5 (which is made up of 47 teams from Virginia, Delaware, Maryland and Washington, D.C.).

Not only did the Norcom team rank the highest that it ever has since the school started a program in 2001, their score also unofficially placed first in the nation (national rankings are not definitive this year due to the number of teams performing virtually without an official in-person proctor available due to the COVID-19 pandemic).

For the competition, five cadets from the school’s program form a team and each member takes an examination that is 75 questions covering topics such as wellness and fitness, first aid, geographic skills, maritime history, leadership, nautical signs and Naval history. 

Cadet Iyana Jordan, Cadet Aniaja Rogers, Cadet Brandon Diston, Cadet Zion Hill and Cadet Anaya Diston were all on this year's winning team.
